With less than two weeks to go, the Met’s Costume Institute Gala is all anyone can talk about at this point. Modelinia has already confirmed that Joy Bryant is wearing Rachel Roy and that Kate Moss has been sketching turbans with Stephen Jones, but there are a few more rumors to discuss.
Apparently, Marc Jacobs will dress his cohost Kate (no surprise there), as well as Helena Christensen. A few pairings make sense simply due to campaigns and contracts. Gisele Bündchen is being dressed by John Galliano, since she modeled for the Dior Spring ’09 campaign, while Arlenis Sosa and Daria Werbowy will sit with Lancôme. Adriana Lima was asked to attend with Givenchy, which only fuels the whispers of her possibly campaigning with the brand after she walked the Fall ’09 runway.
Though it was allegedly reported that Lauren Hutton would be unable to attend due to a surfing accident, she’s set to accompany Michael Kors. Carol Alt is going with new radio voices Dean Caten and Dan Caten. Fresh from their wedding celebration, Andy Roddick will share his wife, Brooklyn Decker, with Derek Lam, who is also dressing Liya Kebede. (What, no J.Crew?) Heidi Klum, in all her baby glory, will be dressed by Gilles Mendel, Anne Vyalitsyna is attending with Peter Som, Lily Donaldson’s date is Narciso Rodriguez, and the Rodarte sisters are dressing Jessica Stam, who just turned 23. Joining Joy Bryant and Rachel Roy will be Lakshmi Menon, and Coco Rocha—despite her love for Zac Posen—will walk with Isaac Mizrahi.
But it doesn’t stop here, as there are still a multitude of models and designers to pair up before the big event!
